Student accommodations abroad vary from program to program. We have chosen the housing option for each program with intentionality to promote the best student experience possible. You may not vary from the housing option available to you on your program of choice.
During the application process, you are required to sign a Program Housing Agreement indicating that you understand your housing responsibilities. These responsibilities, as highlighted below, vary depending on your program:
I understand that the education abroad program/institution to which I am applying does not guarantee housing overseas. It is my responsibility to secure accommodations independently if and when my host program/institution does not have arranged-housing available.
Please note: While housing is not guaranteed, our partner programs and universities may provide resources and suggestions for your housing search. However, you are still responsible for finding, applying for, and securing your housing while abroad.

I understand that independent housing is not an option for me on this program.
I understand that the education abroad program/institution to which I am applying requires that I live with a local host family for the duration of the program.
